Elsa Hoffman is a wood and metal worker based in Chapel Hill. With a handheld plasma cutter, she transforms thin sheets of salvaged metal into 2 and 3-D designs including lights, sculpture and furniture. Using her skills as a trained woodworker, she artfully combines wood and metal, embracing and highlighting the imperfect beauty of the rusted metal and the gestural lines created with the plasma cutter. “Buried in Light and Shadow” is an installation of metal, wood, light and shadow.
